-level officers and enlisted that are so important to the leadership of our military and chuck hagel's leadership and commitment will be critical to that task. i have met with chuck hagel privately, i've asked him tough questions about iran and israel. i'm satisfied on those points that he will advise the president in according to with -- in accord with those policies but even more important i am struck by his passion, the intensity of his commitment to our men and women in uniform. his caring about them is indicated in so many ways. spontaneously and strongly in his testimony, as well as his private conversations. he will make sure that sexual assault in the military, the epidemic and scourge of rape and assault against men and women who serve and sacrifice for this country will be stopped, that there will be, in fact, zero tolerance not only in word but in deed. and his viewing, for example, of the documentary "invisible war," his understanding that this kind of misconduct is an outrage never to be even implicitly condoned and to be treated as a criminal offense, the most extreme kind of predat
on television. today in a 58-40 cloture voted. they blocked chuck hagel being the sex -- secretary of defense. next the hour long debate on the nomination. they said they will not vote for cloture today, i think it's too bad. there's been more than enough time to read the additional speeches that have been coming in. the argument raced beyond that i know has do with the payment an equity fund that was received has been fully explained. as a highly reputable fund that senator hagel was an adviser to like many other reputable people. i think the continuation what amounts to filibuster is too bad when there's a secretary of defense who is leafing to go back to california. we need to have our new secretary of defense in place given the circumstances in this world. we have a budget crisis in this country, our scwesser is confronting us. that's sequester will have a damaging effect on the deference department, on the men and women in uniform. and on the programs, the equipment, the training that they need to be ready for any kind of contingency. so the delay in having a vote on cloture, to me is a
during the hearings of hillary clinton and even chuck hagel. >> heather: so not iminformed responses. i'll toss this question to you. they did indict the department of state, this is a quote, with shocking irresponsibility to protect american personnel at benghazi. the fact is the intelligence community and the department of state, they were sharing reports mostly provided by the c.i.a. for months that were outlining the growing threat in benghazi and, indeed, it was focused on western influence particularly the u.s. those requests early on for additional security prior to the attack went unanswered. you are satisfied with that response from panetta? >> yeah, i think what is being lost is the fact there has been an accountability review of all of this. they have laid out a number of recommendations. thef been agreed to by hillary clinton, by the president, by a number of people. we're not really at this point getting a lot new information. what is being lost in the context lindsay graham's request to have another hearing with will have papa. it's supposed -- leon panetta. there is a lot
. >> should be in place by then. secretary kerry started this week. secretary of state kerry. senator hagel still waiting for his confirmation up in the senate and i was struck last night talking about dick cheney earlier. dick cheney giving a speech in wyoming who really took off on the president. he said "the performance now of barack obama as he staffs up the national security team for the second term is dismal. frankly, what he has appointed are second-rate people, hagel was chosen because obama wants to have a republican that he can use to take the heat for what he plans to do to the department of defense." there is an unbowed dick cheney. >> well, listen, senator hagel didn't do his new boss, president obama, any favors by looking befuddled and confused and clueless as to what the department of defense does, an agency he's up to now run, so i don't think senator hagel did himself any favors for the president. when you look at how republicans have sort of stood back and i think given the president a lot of running room in foreign policy it was because of the belief that secretary clint
'll attempt to block the nominations of chuck hagel and john brennan, accusing the white house of stone walling. he wants to know what the president was doing at the time of the september attack on the u.s. consulate in libya that killed four americans. >>> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the c.i.a. director ship, hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense until the white house gives an accounting. did the president pick up the phone and call anyone to help. >> with his take on benghazi, the hagel brennan confirmation and looming sequester is richard bloomen tholl. i trust the weather's not too bad where you are. >> the roads are building cleared and people ought to shovel now, as you have suggested, rather than waiting, but we're undigging, digging out. and it's winter, it's new england. it's snow and we're dealing with it. >> i grew up in canada so i know about snow. >> let me go to what senator graham said on "face the nation" where he said he's going to do everything he can to block the nominations of john brennan and chuck hagel until and unless the presi
secretary nominee chuck hagel's explosive and contentious senate hearing. what are the chances that he'll get confirmed. >>> the dow closing above 14,000 for the very first time in years. will it continue? that's the big question. >>> but up first some brand new developments this out of alabama. that's where a 5-year-old boy remains hostage in an underground bunker. at this hour authorities sent a special message to the man holding him there, jimmy lee dykes. the standoff began five days ago when police say dykes kidnapped the boy from his school bus after shooting the driver. jonathan serrie is live at the scene in midland city, alabama. what's the latest? >> reporter: no resolution as the hostage standoff goes into a fifth afternoon. however, authorities say they are in constant communication with 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes communicating through the pvc pipe that provides ventilation from the surface to his underground bunker. authorities say they have no reason to believe that any physical harm has come to the 5-year-old hostage. listen. >> mr. dykes, through our communications we'
's talk about chuck hagel's confirmation. i'm sure you saw it. it was great television. a lot of fireworks between hagel and john mccain. take a look. >> we are correct or incorrect. yes or no? >> my reference to the refer -- >> the question is were you right or wrong. that's a pretty straight forward question. i would like to answer and then you are free to elaborate. >> i am not going to give you a yes or no answer. >> joe, first of all, let me ask you this. the white house didn't jump to his defense after that stuff. why not? >> who didn't? >> the white house. the white house didn't jump to his defense. >> the white house has a sense that he has a good chance to be confirmed and everybody know that is the hearings will be contentious. no doubt there will be a lot of consengz and a lot of bad blood between this senator and colleagues and many who question his stance with regard to iran and how strong he would be and also with regard to israel. expect contention. that doesn't mean he won't be confirmed. i don't think the white house will jump to his defense. >> again, white house didn't j

forward, was not able to get the votes to move forward on a confirmation vote on former senator hagel, they must be very upset if they think cozying up to iran and betraying israel further than this administration already has, if they think that's a good idea, closer to iran, betray israel, yesterday was a bad day and you should be very angry with most of the senate republicans and especially my friend senator ted cruz, because they happen to be concerned about our ally israel and concerned about threats of madmen running the country of iran. so if you look, though, at the speeches that have come out after senator hagel had said all things were made public and then this stuff keeps trickling out, another speech, hey, let's put a consulate in iran while they are trying to destroy us and apparently some people can't remember past 10, 12 years and i think it's important to remember our history. 1979, i was at fort beening, georgia in the united states army and some of us haven't forgotten what was happening. and as we have seen new things arise, as we have seen the horrors of what is goi

about chuck hagel because we expect a vote tomorrow now even very close to hagel and asking for him to be confirmed. they suggested last week the white house that he did have the votes with richard shelby, a republican saying that he has endorsed him, that he at least stops the filibuster and gets a final confirmation sometime this week. >> we now have about 66 votes. not all of them declared to basically call on cloture, and they have well over the number of needed of majority votes, including richard shelby, potentially lisa murkowski, but she hasn't declared where she is on hagel per se. this looks like it will go forward. we're all expecting this vote to take place tomorrow afternoon. probably get e yet again during your show, andrea. if ted cruise and jim inhoff want to drag this out to the furthest possible end, they could call 30 more hours of debate and the vote could take place on wednesday. >> chris, now we have the sequester. only four days away. no sign of progress. the governor's role there, very strong republican governors, you some real rising political republican sta

hagel for secretary of defense yet, david petraeus' replacement, john brennan and secretary of state john kerry, he's still finding his way around the state department. what are they leaning to in terms of arming the sunni rebels. >> the president is still pretty much leaning totally against directly arming the rebels with u.s. military equipment. they're getting nonlethal aid, some computers, phones, humanitarian assistance, several hundred million dollars to the rebels. but as far as weapons are concerned, i think the boobama administration, the president of the united states, together with the european allies, they're reluctant to do it, afraid those weapons might get into the wrong hands. some of the rebels might be affiliated with al qaeda, for example. if you provide weapons to some of these groups they could wind up endangering potentially israeli aircraft in the vicinity. the airment in favor of it is, bashar al assad's regime has been brutal. hundreds of thousands refugees, thousands dead. more than a million misplaced. the president rejected the advice of his top national s

with the greatest of ease. senator hagel has hearings beginning next week and he has perhaps been the most controversial. we would all be paying attention to the nominee to be the director of control and intelligence and who has himself a history of some controversy on both the left and the right. so we could just talk about what the implications of this are and i want to type with these two questions together. many of us who work in foreign policy are drawn in. in the old days, this is not as embraced as it is now. for those of us who didn't study history, a lot of us remember that all of these inconsequential and rather uninteresting country is, whether it was czechoslovakia of the time or the molly of the time, they were the precursors to larger battles that could have been dealt with had they been dealt with early. i wonder thinking through that where we see things going and underscored the throat open and see who grabs at first. >> okay. well, let's just compare senator kerry and senator hagel to senator hillary clinton and bob gates. by that standard, both of the nominees -- they are
. but that's diplomacy comest you can get a bit of a pass. senator hagel, key was had by the executive commission on china, but talk solely about development issues. rule of law and economic growth is fine. but that's not the job he's getting. he said absolutely nothing about the rise of china. he's also said absolutely nothing about he has had the defense department is going to do with the rise of china in an era of budget cuts to the defense department he supports. it's very troubling, fred has a great way of putting this consensus reality that in a sense it doesn't matter. so did not do the job better and you can take that for granted. japan for the first time in a decade has not just her and run defense budget, modestly $1.6 billion increase. it would be nice to see it continue, but everyone watches very carefully to see the leading indicator, which is us and what we're willing to do. taiwan is a country rushing to the exit to make sure nothing comes between it and china and therefore i would argue the same credibility over whether the united states would intervene and i taiwan str
a favor by withdrawing the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. a man who is so utterly and ignorant of the real enemy that we face that he believes that iran can be trusted and israel can't. he'd be better suited for taking tickets at yellow stone than the placement of our military assets to defend against threats. i hope you'll call and e-mail your senator, urge him or her to use a little common sense. and while acknowledging that the president has the privilege to name his team. he does not have the right to put people on his team, who betrayed the trust of the american people and our friends in the real world. that's my view. [applause]. well, most of the over 4,000 persons who are aboard the carnival triumph cruise ship are on the way home or on their way home. and it's going to be a long time before they forget their ordeal. >> more than 4,000 people are stuck on a cruise ship dead in the water. a fire in the engine room knocked out power. >> and crying and stuff and said they had no power, they had no running water. they have no way to use the bathroom. >> food is

reacted more quickly. i think john kerry will push the administration and that direction. chuck hagel to a certain extent by not putting boots in the ground and areas where we know little and have no idea what the out come will be. the example is libya and what happened in benghazi. a huge intem jens failure. not the state department, but the cia. >> with syria, we move our red lines and losing credibility. you said that militarism has negatively affected the period abroad. i wonder if you weigh in on whether you think his drone program or the expansion of the drone program has damaged our reputation abroad even further. >> for damaged our reputation bad low. the idea that a president is sitting in the white house with a hit list with candidates for targeted killings is an outrage. the real blunder was to nominate john brennan as the director of central intelligence that explain a policy he orchestrated and conceived and is responsible for implementing. any other would note have dealt with the questions that john brennan had to deal with. i think obama should go back to the positions
will sail through the senate with the greatest of ease. senator hagel's hearings begin next week. he has been, perhaps, the most controversial. if he had not been nominated and somebody well qualified and less controversial had been put in place, someone like michele flournoy or ash carter, then, of course, we would all be paying attention to mr. brennan who is the nominee to be director of central intelligence and who has himself a history of some controversy on both the heft and the right ironically. so if we could just talk about what the implications of this are, and i'm going to try and put these two questions together, actually, and to digress and explain this question a little better, many of us who work in foreign policy studied history because that's what draws you in. and in the old days polysci and ir were fields that weren't exactly embraced as they are now, and for those of us who did study history, a hot remember that all these inconsequential and rather interesting countries whether it was the czechoslovakias or malis of the time were the precursors to larger battles that
